Tradition with a Twist
Shadowdancer is Jack Montgomery & Graham Hudspeth, two friends who had worked together musically and decided to form a duet and play the Celtic music they both enjoyed. Shadowdancer, formed in February of 2005, now performs at a variety of venues including clubs, and folk festivals in Nashville, TN as well as in Louisville, KY, Clarksville, Tennessee, Charleston, S.C. and their home town of Bowling Green, KY. Their unique sound is focused around original compositions as well as their interpretations of the traditional music of England, Scotland and Ireland. Jack, originally from Columbia, S.C. began performing professionally at age fifteen. He moved to Bowling Green, KY in 1998 to work as a librarian at WKU and became a founding member of the well-known local folk band "Lost River." Jack sings and accompanies himself on guitar, harmonica, and Appalachian dulcimer while expanding his musical expression to include his interests in folklore and mythology. Graham, a native of Bowling Green, Kentucky is active in the local Bowling Green and regional music scene as he has been since his teens. The bands Avian, the Jambodians, Kyle Daniel Band, and Cootie Brown are only a few of the musical organizations to which Graham has contributed. Graham excels as a vocalist and versatile musician, playing guitar, bass, mandolin and bouzouki.
